I love you British Council staff, your are doing great job.

Hello everyone,

First, I would welcome all of you.

I read section 7 - Joke and i think there is one mistake. The word "kilometres" isn't correst writing. I think that should be replace letter "R" and "E".

Best regards,
Mika Pavlic

Hi everybody,

I want to write some comments about a great sportsman Rafael Nadal, the Spanish tennis player. He is always fighting but, at the same time he is really polite with his opponents. His physical features aren't the best for tennis, however he has worked hard to improve and to evercome injuries. I think is a perfect model to the teenagers.

Hi everybody, I'll talk to you about Cappadocia.
Cappadocia is in Turkey, in Nevşehir. It's a historical settlement. There is a lot of houses in the big rocks. Cappadocia is in the UNESCO world heritage list. About 1,5 million people visit Cappadocia each years. There is a lot of things to visit in Cappadocia. Churchs, monasteries, valleys which keep historical city life, and Derinkuyu underground city which has got 12 stairs but you can visit only 8 stairs. You can fly by balloon and see all the Cappadocia. Of course you can taste a lot of rergional flavors. I went to there last year and just once.

i appreciate these podcasts.

Hi sir,
Thank you for your kind reply.
